Guelph Police Service dog Charger played a role in Wednesday’s arrest of a robbery suspect.
Police were called to a business at Silvercreek Parkway and Willow Road after a man, brandishing a knife, stole an undisclosed amount of money from the establishment around 4 a.m.
Officers investigating the incident were scouring the neighbourhood for signs of a suspect and found another business had its window smashed and items taken.
A 24-year-old Guelph man was arrested a short time later in connection with the armed robbery and a break-in at the second business.
Charger, the police dog, was sniffing out the area and was able to recover items believed to have been taken from the robbery and the break-in.
Police also recovered the cash that was stolen and discarded.
The accused is facing several charges including robbery, weapons dangerous, break and enter and breaching a probation order.
He was held for a bail hearing Wednesday morning.
